A judgment was entered against a man for unpaid credit card charges in a limited civil case. The man’s original debt was owed to a bank. The bank sold the account to a receivables company. The receivables company assigned the account to plaintiff. The declaration of plaintiff’s custodian of records, with attached bill of sale, assignment and monthly billing statements, was used at trial to prove the debt.
In a personal injury case, a jury found defendant negligent and awarded $261,713.71 for past medical expenses. Plaintiff had no medical insurance, and her medical providers rendered service to her on a lien basis. However, a third party purchased the lien for a discounted amount, although plaintiff remained liable for the total amount.
